Evidently version 19 will have automatic indenting.

FORTRAN 77 (which is the version on DEC machines in 1971) could do it and it did not have the convention of ending a command with a period.

SPSS colors complete procedures and (in)complete loops etc. so most of the logic should already be there in the editor. A statement is incomplete until a period id hit in the text parser.
